This is the position after 39...Kh7. White has to try for a perpetual check, and the only way he can think of doing it is by advancing his pawns to open some lines.

So, in turn, Marshall pushes the h-, f-, and g-pawns forward frantically. Lasker phlegmatically absorbs them all, and with the queens coming off as well Marshall is finally forced to concede.
